    These politicians that want to confiscate the guns will be really shocked when a battle they never envisioned breaks out and continues to grow and grow and grow into war they certainly don’t wanna fight. That will be the beginning of the biggest Civil War anyone in the world has known.

    And then our enemies can take us apart as a country divided. That is what they want anyway.

    New generations tend to forget or at least not be able to grasp the amount of guns that have been made well beyond the century. Ever since black powder became smokeless powder the number of guns has been an endless waterfall pouring out of every factory on the planet. That said, the numbers were already looking pretty good in the black powder days. None of these guys (Colt, Smith, etc) has taken a day off work in a hundred years. Especially during war times! We were melting anything we could get our hands on to make more guns in all the wars. Now days we have the startup companies pouring millions into the established pot. To really grasp how many guns are out there, add every day of production to every manufacturer out there for just 150 years and you’ll see how low your guesses are. We lost some over the years, but the number lost wouldn’t show up on a pie chart. It’s amazing to me that we aren’t kicking them out from under our feet walking into the store.

    When you factor in statements like these from various pols (paraphrased)..."once the clip is empty it is useless so eventually there will be no more guns"...and..."in 10 or so years the guns will be worn out so it's a matter of a few years when we will be free of gun violence"... it's easy to see why the 300 million-ish number never changes. The old, no longer functioning guns, are replaced by new ones so the net total remains the same in their blind eyes.

    I know people who haven’t shot their guns in ten years...... some decades. They aren’t in constant use. They aren’t being worn by average joe. They are sitting in a safe.

    Smith and Wesson sold over 1 million Shield 9mm between 2012 and 2015. That’s 1 maker of 1 gun in their lineup and 1 million of those in 3 years. Not a grain of a percentage of those wore out in those 3 years. Now add that to the number of gun companies that are capable of making those numbers..... let’s say 10 just to be low. Each has a flagship gun that sells a million within 3 years. That’s 10 million guns in just 3 years. Now let’s remember they sell MANY guns in their lineup not just 1. That’s a third of the total guns estimated to be around for all time in 3 years.

    My question on this statement is---were they all sold in the U.S.?

    Going to point this out - thing is with the saying "worlds largest army". I'm open if someone wants to help me see what I'm not seeing. I kind of look at that like its some gung- ho kid saying it, looking to trump / one up some other kid on the playground. Theyre so many fuds out there who would turn n run or turn people in and just give up their firearms. Yet not every hunter is some fud. If there was a way to break it down, though there's not. America is the largest "non standing army" - based on the fuds out there being some part of defending America or helping America during some type of civil unrest- um they wont. They'll rather comply and turn you in. Benedict arnolds. I've seen fuds at hearings and town / city meetings and talk to lots. They are 100% not for the Second Amendment in believing what it says and is for - long with other parts of the Bill of Rights and theyre for more firearm laws. I don't put faith in fuds.
